[Vm-dev] idle VM runs at constant 3-5% CPU load

i just wonder, what takes so much CPU time, even if it completely idle...

4831-  NBCog        4.8
51519- NBCog        3.5

if i kill a UI process, the load goes down to 2.5-3 % ...
still too much.

i would like to know how we can minimize this.
The reason why i concerned is straightly pragmatic: extending battery life..

i found that if i run completely on battery.. it depleting quite fast
with VM running (and i don't do anything just coding, i.e not running
benchmarks, but more thinking and typing).

Best regards,
